T-Mobile Uncarrier 4.0 event – ETFs paid off, Wideband LTE and New Devices

Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 21.17.50

Today at its Uncarrier 4.0 event, T-Mobile announced a handful of new products and services. John Legere took to the stage at an incredibly intimate event. His style was typically relaxed, addressing members of the audience personally at times. He even took time to pay tribute to Verizon for addressing spectrum issues. But, the most important was the new promotion.

We heard a while ago we heard that Tmo was planning to release families from contracts early by paying their early termination fees. That information was correct.

“Get out of Jail Free Card” 

T-Mobile is going to pay off early termination fees for customers wanting to switch from AT&T, Verizon or Sprint. The total offer for the trade-in/rebate could be as high as $650 per line. “Could be” normally indicates a catch somewhere, so we’ll wait and see all the details on that as they come through.

“4G LTE Network Fastest in the Country” 

T-Mobile also announced that it has the fastest LTE network in the country. Unlike reports from consultants, firms etc. these results are from SpeedTest.net. Actual, real-life speeds, tested by real-life customers. On average, it’s over 17Mbps. And it’s getting better. Tmo now covers 209 million people in 273 metro areas, and its adding more spectrum and beginning the launch of its Wideband LTE service (20+20) in Dallas. Wideband was a big push at the announcement and the great news is that almost all LTE compatible phones are compatible with this new, faster, broader network.

(They also made a point to have a dig at the faults of the competitor networks, including Verizon’s odd decision to add AWS spectrum to its chest, despite the fact that many of its handsets aren’t compatible.)

New Devices

A handful of new devices is coming very soon: LG G Flex, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (7.0) and Sony Xperia Z1S. We’ve already heard of these. So it’s no surprise to us, but it’s good to hear that the lineup of great devices is continuing to expand.

    Oh……thats it? Wheres the hspa turned of for all lol

    Cam, you forgot the part where T-mobile customers in contract can get out of their contract with no ETF:

    “T-Mobile is also making it easier for its longtime customers to migrate to Simple Choice plans as well without incurring any migration fees. To qualify for this option a current customer under contract trades in their current device and purchases a new T-Mobile device and switches to Simple Choice. In addition to waiving the migration fee, T-Mobile will also eliminate the existing annual service contract for that customer’s line.”

    I’m going to do it and immediately return the phone, which gets me out of my contract.

    • Justin747

      I can almost guarantee there will be a clause to prevent this.

      You don’t think T-Mobile is just gonna run around buying out contracts and not getting anything in return do you? T-Mobile is still a business. They have to make money.

      • kalel33

        I’m not talking about me doing this by coming from another carrier. I’m a T-mobile customer and in a 2 year contract. They don’t lose a single thing by letting me out of my 2 year contract. They don’t have to pay off my ETF. They can’t stick me with another contract, after it’s been removed.

        • D_Wall__

          They would port you over to a Simple Choice plan.

        • kalel33

          That’s fine. I’m a single line that uses under 2GB of data per month. I save more money by switching to an AT&T MVNO or I could go to Verizon prepaid, pay less, and buy the Motorola Moto G for only $99 outright. I just couldn’t do it before because I didn’t want to pay the $200 ETF. Legere was correct. They just gave me a “Get out jail free card”…..though it’s from them and not a competitor.

        • Glad I Left CA

          Have fun with your new “jail”. Every other carrier will sign you into a contract.

        • kalel33

          You don’t know what an MVNO is do you? It’s no contract and Verizon prepaid is no contract but thanks, I’m finally getting out of T-mobile’s jail they had me in.

        • Sean

          Enjoy your slower data speeds and bloated network. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out…

        • kalel33

          First, I don’t watch videos on my phone, so I’d be happy with 3G. Secondly, I’ll enjoy my much much faster data speeds outside of cities and won’t be limited on the amount of data while I’m traveling, unlike how I am with T-mobile’s 50MB of roaming data limit. Thirdly, if I go with an AT&T MVNO then I’ll have faster data speeds on average.

          No more Edge or GPRS or “no service” when I’m not in a big city. Cheaper, faster, and much much larger network. I’m looking forward to it.

        • Justin747

          If you aren’t leaving T-Mobile, why worry about the contract?

          I am also under contract. I switched to T-Mobile 2 days before UnCarrier 1.0 (I hadn’t discovered this site yet) . T-Mobile has way too much momentum right now. I’m not leaving so my contact is irrelevant

        • kalel33

          I’ve been wanting to leave T-mobile for awhile. I’m on the 500 minute Value plan, which is cheaper than the Simple Choice plans. Last year I had to switch to 4GB of data for one month (I chose the wrong podcasts to download: video and not audio) and was never told that the 2GB data plan was grandfathered. They wouldn’t give me my 2GB data plan back. I can save more money by going to an MVNO for AT&T or Verizon prepaid, which would give me better coverage for when I travel for visits back home in Kansas.

        • Justin747

          I see a pretty easy way for T-Mobile to prevent this.

          They will probably just not make any plan changes effective until the day after the phone return period.

          You can’t possibly think there is a loophole this obvious in their plan.

        • kalel33

          I can make sure the plan change is done “on demand”, which changes the plan that day and then I’ll verify the contract is off of the account. If they “future date” the plan then i’ll just have them remove the future order and then return the phone. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

        • Justin747

          Oh I agree. Definitely low risk and high reward.

          I just don’t see T-Mobile having a loophole that obvious in this plan.

          I worked in cellular too. I understand future dating and on demand, but in situations like this 4.0 they could throw all that out of the window. I can’t see T-Mobile giving this whole 4.0 thing the green light without lots of planning and restrictions to cover their tracks.

    • Nope

      That is unlikely. Take the old upgrade contracts into consideration, where if you returned an upgraded phone within the 14 day period then the company reset your contract. I highly doubt that you’ll be able to stay out of contract, specifically since the guideline with this promotion is that you upgrade to a new device.

      No new phone? No terminated contract. Period.

      • kalel33

        Oh, I’ll buy the phone but I’ll return it within 14 days and brand new so they can’t hit me with a restocking fee. They can’t legally put me back into contract once I’m out of it.

        In the old upgrade contracts, your previous contract is still in place but it’s superseded by the new contract. When you return the phone they just eliminate the new contract. Once they wipe out my previous contract they can’t legally force me back into another one. I understand the contracts very well. I was a T-mobile customer service rep for 3 years.

        • Nope

          I’m glad you have your working knowledge of contracts, but as a current T-Mobile retail rep and a past customer service representative… I beg to differ. You’re being very optimistic and trying to work a system that probably had something put into place to prevent this within 5 minutes after the idea was pitched. I won’t say you will be completely wrong but don’t be shocked if/when you are.

          It’s not that they’d be forcing you back into another contract, it’s just that they won’t be keeping you off contract when the terms for having that specific detail are no longer met.

        • kalel33

          Store looked up the policy and even though they really didn’t like what I am going to do, they also couldn’t find anything in the policy which would stop me from doing it.

    • jdubtrey

      But you would be left with no phone at all, correct?

      Also, I don’t understand why you have to buy a new phone if you are a current customer. That makes very little sense to me.

    • fsured

      Let us know how this goes. I have my mother who just moved to the West side of Omaha just out of T-Mobile signal. They would not let me cancel that line without paying the $200 EFT even though service is useless. The line of service doesn’t work and by his own words, I should be able to cancel and let her move to my brothers Verizon account with coverage there.

      • Sean

        Just need to switch to Simple Choice and it shouldn’t be a problem.

        • fsured

          Problem is having to turn her phone in to buy another and have the Simple Choice plan. I don’t need another phone or to keep the service if there is no coverage. If they would let me turn around and cancel the line with Simple Choice since the contract is over and return the phone then I’m all for it. They will even get the phone in it’s original unopened box.

        • kalel33

          So I talked with a store. I didn’t have them open my account so I could be honest with them. I would have to trade in my phone(no big deal) and then buy another phone on EIP. Pay off the phone and then return it. I told them exactly what I was planning on doing and they didn’t like it at all that I was using a loophole but they couldn’t find anything in the policy that stated it wouldn’t work.

    • cockkerman

      this is incorrect kalel33

      • kalel33

        How is it incorrect? I copied that post directly from T-mobile’s website.

    • Gamaya

      Yes, but then you will be owing the price of the new phone you just bought.

      • kalel33

        I’ll buy the phone outright and then return it within the 14 days, new in the box so I don’t get hit with a restocking fee.

  • kev2684

    “AT&T Customers: switch to T-Mobile and we will pay your ETF. if you don’t like it, AT&T will buy you back! it’s a beautiful thing it is unbelievable. they almost handed their customers a free drive with T-Mobile”

    john legere said something like that or to that effect i died.

    • D_Wall__

      I thought the same. Even tho ATT would make money both ways, Its awesome.

    • donnybee

      And AT&T thought they had the upper hand..

      “Those fat cats are pretty slow..” I loved it!! What a great energetic event!

  • Justin

    No Catch, the $350 rebate is based on what your current cancellation fee is. Thats a promise, the other $300 is based on what your current device is worth and that will be paid out at full value. SO, no catch.

    • Andy Chung

      what if you don’t buy device from t-mobile? You don’t qualify?

      • epsiblivion

        they’re not gonna give you money you’re not gonna spend on their phones. you’d make more back by selling it yourself if it’s a smartphone

        • Andy Chung

          but you are spending money on their plan, Isn’t that what they are going after? customers? Ready to do this, but I don’t need to buy new device at this point.

        • epsiblivion

          well if your phone can run on tmobile bands, just wait and see if it requires sending your phone in. if not, then you could probably just get reimbursed for ETF and switch

        • kalel33

          They make money on the phones too, so they want you to buy their phones. If you use your own phone then they’re losing money off of you.

        • Enoch Cheng

          You’re set. They will pay for your ETF

    • AndroidProfit

      I seriously doubt that tmobile is going to give you anywhere close to what you can get selling it yourself.

  • GameBoi/KillaBit

    Mean while, I’m still on EDGE. The carriers he dissed all have LE in my area. I’ll be going to at&t in a few weeks.

    • D_Wall__

      See ya!

      • GameBoi/KillaBit

        Must’ve hurt your feelings. I’ll see you with spotty coverage.

        • Glad I Left CA

          Use WiFi when you’re home! The money you save is well worth it!

        • Spanky

          Again…why pay for data when we have to resort to using WiFi?

        • donnybee

          Not for long. T-Mobile is committed to expanding coverage, and seeing as this buyout option is permanent, I’m sure we’ll be seeing you again. You want the fastest, so I don’t blame you for switching, but once T-Mobile comes in with it’s faster network and unlimited data, you’ll want back in.

          I’m sure many, many customers who complain about slow data speeds will be taking a short hiatus from T-Mobile as well.

    • Michael Pitts

      Where the hell are you living that your still getting Edge a cave or something???

      • sahib102 .

        I still live with edge :P so I must be in a cave XD … but in all serious yea tmobile have edge here and there but its getting better as time goes by ;)

      • LaGurl323

        @michael pitts not all of us live in caves i live in LOS ANGELES which is a HUGE city im sure u know LA is a huge important city and in terms of coverage tmobile and sprint are the same spotty coverage tmobile still has LOTS of edge just like sprint has alot of slow 3G only att and verizon have Solid LTE coverage around LA .

        • Michael Pitts

          My bad poor choice of words there i meant no disrespect Im from the northeast and did not realize that LA was like that with T-Mobile, I responded like that cause i have not seen Edge on my device in years but then again i live in heart of Boston, but i would have expected all carriers to have a huge footprint in the LA market.

        • Spanky

          I live in NYC and T-Mobile’s data speeds in my neighborhood are only slightly higher than EDGE (0.5 Mbps down). While T-Mobile may be good in areas with strong coverage, it’s coverage is like Swiss cheese.

        • Deebee

          Where in NYC are you?! I’ve not yet been to a place in the boroughs (unless a bar in a basement) where it was that bad. Just curious. I suppose there might be a few spots without repeaters, but I’ve not run into them yet.

        • Spanky

          I’m in Bensonhurst, around Cropsey and 18th. T-Mo’s data speed in this area is abysmal, but not as bad as it is a few blocks away around 78th and 18th, where it tops out at a blazing fast 0.09 Mbps downstream. Verizon and AT&T have excellent coverage/speeds in the area. Sprint usually fluctuates between “No Service” and 1 bar.

      • Vikram Singh

        The LTE drops to edge surprisingly quickly for me when leaving major metro areas and cities like san jose (one of the first places for tmobile to launch LTE). You may not get out much but if you move around a bit you’ll see that places where verizon has LTE tmobile still has edge.

        I am a tmobile customer btw, and I love what they’re doing, I just wished they would improve rural coverage. 10 mi from sj and i’m on edge.

      • GameBoi/KillaBit

        Southeast Missouri and it’s more spotted than a dalmatian.

  • D_Wall__

    WooHoo! being in FL myself this is great. the speeds here are amazing.

  • AndroidProfit

    Is tmobile REQUIRING that you turn in a device?

    • Pat

      Nope. You can trade it in for credit if you want.

    • Chris Hilbert

      A trade-in is required to get the money. You also have to buy a device from them. However, it can be any old phone for the buy and the trade. If I were coming over I’d trade any old flip phone, buy the cheapest device they have, and buy a Nexus 5 from google to actually use.

  • Noor Mahmoud

    There is absolutely no reason why everyone shouldn’t switch over to tmobile right now.

    • jdubtrey

      What if you have edge speeds in your suburb?

      • Glad I Left CA

        Use your WiFi when you get home! Most people already have it! The money you save is WELL worth using the WiFi you already pay for!

        • 21stNow

          What if I want to leave one store and go to a different store and need use Navigation to get there? I don’t want to have to wait 10 minutes for the map to load.

        • Spanky

          My thoughts exactly. Also, why pay for data and resort to using WiFi? Personally, I’d rather pay a higher monthly rate and actually get the service I pay for.

        • 21stNow

          I agree. Plus, my home internet service is slow (1Mbps). There’s only two companies that provide internet service in my area and though the other one is faster, I don’t want to be their customer.

    • kalel33

      If you have good coverage in your area, need unlimited data , or have multiple lines then you are correct. But if you’re a single line and don’t need unlimited data then you can find cheaper and better coverage elsewhere.

      • cockkerman

        you need to move to a better coverge area asap

        • kalel33

          I live in a city of over 400,000 and is the second biggest city in the state of Colorado.

    • deebee

      Actually, there is. I’m sick of Legere running his mouth about how shitty AT&T’s network is, considering how absolutely shitty T-Mo’s network is anywhere outside of their key markets such as the 5 boroughs of NYC, Dallas and where ever else they started deploying their LTE towers.

      I use a Nexus 4 and have an excellent T-Mo plan with unlimited data/tethering. Just last night, on the way home from work.. I tested my speeds in LIC NY. Got 22 Mbps down and about 2.2 up. Great, absolutely great, also considering that I haven’t switched radios for the LTE band, so that was just HSPA+

      BUT… leave NYC and it’s downhill really fast! We went to Vermont a couple weeks ago, and all I can say is.. had we been in trouble and only had MY phone, we could have wound up dead. The phone was useless, a brick. Thankfully, it would roam on ATT’s tower there and voice was possible.

      My wife’s iPhone 5 got much better reception with ATT, which I had expected though… But everyone up there uses Verizon. So my point is, if we are talking numbers, and someone says that ATT reaches 290 million people in an area vs T-Mo’s 240 million, that’s still 50 million people not being reached. I’d hardly call that an arbitrary number.

      They need to expand their network and reach the boondock areas before going off on how badly another carrier’s network “sucks”. Also, while driving and getting my 22 Mbps, my friend with Verizon got 55 Mbps down and 30 up. Yeah, that sounds pretty shitty eh? LOL The only reason I keep the T-Mo is for the unlimited data/tethering. But of course, it will only work while I’m in NYC. Lame.

  • jdubtrey

    Where is the list of “eligible phones” that can be traded in via this promotion?

    • Enoch Cheng

      Any phone you have pretty much. You get a “fair market” price. Amounts to like $280 for the iPhone 5S. I think you’d be better off selling on eBay or Craigslist (more money)

        Thanks.

        So can I trade in an iPhone 3g (since it was listed on the form)?

        • Enoch Cheng

          Yep! You may or may not be able to get more elsewhere (eBay, craigslist, etc.)

  • Cephess

    Is TMO canceling current customers ETFs ..

    • Enoch Cheng

      YES! As long as you switch to Simple Choice! This was asked after the presentation.

      • Cephess

        What if your already switch to simple choice ..

        • kalel33

          Sucks to be you then. JK but I do feel for the people who have already switched to the Simple Choice and are still in contract. I never switched so I can get out of mine.

        • philyew

          Not so painful. I had no intentions of going anywhere else and am saving big bucks every month over what was already an excellent legacy plan.

          I think if I trade in our phones, I could still end the contracts.

        • kalel33

          So was I, until they I had to switch to 4GB of data one month and then tried to switch back. They never alerted me the 2GB data plan was grandfathered. So I’ll pay less with an AT&T MVNO or Verizon prepaid and get better coverage.

        • philyew

          Fair enough.

        • just me

          Just curious, have you tried talking to loyalty or a supervisor yet? The 2GB features are still accessible on grandfathered plans from Samson with the right permissions.

          Barring that, good luck with your plan to get out of your contract. Hope the grass is greener for ya. Maybe if the coverage gets better down the line we’ll see you again :)

        • kalel33

          I tried to get over to loyalty, even giving the “bells of churn” with asking about my contract date and talking about other carriers. The rep was just doing their job. They aren’t supposed to transfer you until you actually say you want to cancel right now.

        • just me

          Yep, that’s true. On the other hand, it doesn’t hurt anything to ask for a supervisor and tell them the story. No bad reflection on the rep, at least not in my call center. Might take some whining, but most supervisors would probably go ahead and change the SOC for you. If you can get to tech support before escalating to the supervisor, your chances would probably be better. Little more work on your part than should be necessary IMO, but worth it. Good luck, either way.

        • Enoch Cheng

          Nothing new at all. I’m in a Simple Choice Plan. Just hoping for better coverage. I barely get 2 bars at my school, sometimes its no service. T-Mobile didn’t consider that almost no phone support 700mhz A-Block. iPhone 5S included (I have one)

        • Aaron H

          im waiting to upgrade phones cause im not sure what’s going to happen with the 700mhz spectrum and available phones to handle it

        • Enoch Cheng

          I believe the ONLY phone sold in this country that supports that band is the Moto X. When the iPhone 6 comes out, I’m sure it will be supported. Probably going to sell my iPhone 5S and get that. (I’m an Apple fanboy)

        • dtam

          don’t bother waiting….it’ll be about 2 years before the network will be up. pretty much in time for your next upgrade

        • superg05

          SOMEONE CAN’T READ MID TO LATE 2014

        • dtam

          someone is a DB and probably has a small package which is why they have to CAPITALIZE EVERYTHING! that article was written after I had replied. and the article says mid to late 2014 is when they start rolling it out not flip the switch and every tower suddenly supports it. if LTE rollout is any indication, end of 2015 is a realistic time frame for coverage to most people. stop trolling dude

        • philyew

          Yes they did. That’s one of the reasons they introduced Jump!, understanding that there would be a rapid cycle through new spectrum over the next 24-36 months with 700MHz arriving this year and 600MHz in 2015-16.

        • Enoch Cheng

          My gripe with Jump is you never actually own the phone. Hence, I buy my phones unlocked. Of course, people who like to get new phones when they come out are greatly benefitted by Jump.

        • thepanttherlady

          If you don’t JUMP!, you own the phone when it’s paid off.

          I think the people that will truly benefit the most from JUMP! are the ones that do so at the 6 month mark because 20 months of payments are being removed and with a zero down payment. That number goes down with every month you make a payment, of course.

        • philyew

          I think you own it the moment you leave the store, but you also have a finance payment obligation to address as well. It’s not a lease/purchase, but a financed purchase.

        • thepanttherlady

          Thank you, I could have worded my response better.

          I think the misconception is (and this isn’t the only article relating to JUMP! we’ve seen this in) that you’re “leasing” the device because you have to trade it in to JUMP!. While this is true, if you choose not to JUMP!, the phone is yours and you simply continue with your monthly EIP payments until completed.

        • Enoch Cheng

          But to be eligible to JUMP, don’t you need to pay a fee each month? If you don’t use the JUMPs, aren’t you essentially just throwing money in the water. Also, my understanding was that the phones are not unlocked until the EIP is payed off. (no longer AS BIG a deal now that its Global Data)

        • thepanttherlady

          Yes; however, unlike AT&T and Verizon’s upgrade programs, T-Mobile’s includes insurance. The monthly JUMP!/insurance fee is $10.

          I’m not familiar with the unlocking policies as they’ve changed but according to the article here from August there is an international exception in which you only need to have paid two full months of your billing cycle and EIP to get a code:

          http://www.tmonews.com/2013/08/t-mobiles-sim-unlock-policy-changes-begin-tomorrow-august-24th/

        • 21stNow

          I’m not sure about VZW’s, but AT&T’s Next program doesn’t have an additional monthly fee to begin with. I don’t consider T-Mobile’s inclusion of the insurance fee in the JUMP! fee to be an advantage.

        • D Nice

          How so when insurance alone can be between $7.99 and $10 bucks. It’s like you get two for one.

        • 21stNow

          You can look at it like that if you are one that carried phone insurance before the JUMP! program started. I have never had phone insurance (I don’t see the value in it), so the $10 JUMP! fee is an additional fee to me that has no value.

        • D Nice

          I can agree with that if you don’t carry insurance on your device. However if you do it’s not a bad deal at all. I also agree to the fact of not carrying insurance because it is a racket. Let’s say you are paying $10 a month for insurance and 12 months into your contract you have to file a claim. That’s $120 that has been paid into the insurance already. Your deductible can run you $100.00 so far we are at $220. If you add $100 that will put you at $320 that you can get a solid device at swappa, ebay, newegg, amazon, or Craigslist.

          You run the risk of the seller reporting the phone lost or stolen and getting a brick. Or they could stop paying the account originally used to buy the phone and it gets blocked.

          I can’t speak for every buyer but! That’s why you check the ESN/IMEI number before you buy the device. I usually go to the carrier store to check everything out and get the phone switched over to my account before anything. Many people have been burned in the past but it is a proper way to go about doing this.

          Do you mean in a legal or a practical sense? Legally, it is your phone. In a practical sense, it only makes sense to pay the subscription if you stay on the carousel.

          It really is your phone like its your house or car even though you make payments.

          NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO JUMP IF YOU DON’T AND PAY OFF YOUR DEVICE ITS YOURS

        • Enoch Cheng

          I was merely referring to the extra cost of JUMP if you don’t JUMP.

        • Singleweird

          you do own the phone 100%. its a financing plan. you can do whatever you want with the device – youre just left with a loan to pay,

          try to get in touch with john legere’s office, they will probably help you out if u explain your situation.

        Yep, and I’m doing it so I can switch to an AT&T MVNO. It’ll save me more money per month.

      “T-Mobile is also making it easier for its longtime customers to migrate to Simple Choice plans as well without incurring any migration fees. To qualify for this option a current customer under contract trades in their current device and purchases a new T-Mobile device and switches to Simple Choice. In addition to waiving the migration fee, T-Mobile will also eliminate the existing annual service contract for that customer’s line.”

    When you switch and submit your final bill with the ETF, how is T-Mobile going to pay that off? Is it a check in the mail or simply credit toward your monthly bill?

      Vida card

      Once you get the final bill They will send you a visa card in an 8 week period.

    I have AT&T with 3 lines. My girlfriend is one of them. If we switch to T-Mobile and put it in her name, will they still pay my ETF seeing as I have to send them a copy of my bill(which will have MY name on it and not my girlfriends)?
    I would THINK so since they talked about it working well for families breaking up, and ONE person leaving the group to be on T-Mobile.

    • kalel33

      I’d bet money it’ll have to be in the same name as the AT&T bill.

      • Magentaemployee

        It does not have to be the same name on the bill. As long as you are porting over a number to t-mobile if that number has an ETF we will reimburse you for it. The tmobile account can be under a different name. Just have to be porting over a number onto a t-mobile account.

    • InsideBaseball

      That’s a good question, but I would bet the three ported numbers are the most important. I’m assuming as long as the 3 lines on your T-Mobile account match the AT&T account, you would be golden.

    • neoslan

      Easy solution. Merge your 2 different att accounts into one. (Port line into one account) Then, move over to T-Mobile.
